About the Author

Elizabeth Brooks' debut novel, The Orphan of Salt Winds, was hailed by BuzzFeed as "evocative, gothic, and utterly transportive." She grew up in Chester, England, graduated from Cambridge University, and resides on the Isle of Man with her husband and two children.

Reviews

The Whispering House is atmospheric and creepy, and as needy, nostalgic Freya is pulled deeper and deeper into its shadows, the reader's worry for her grows--and, with it, the novel's suspense. Freya is haunted by words she wishes she could take back, the sister she lost, the love that never was, the hopes for the future that she couldn't attain; all of these materialize in the deep shadows and shifting portrait-eyes of Byrne Hall. Brooks has crafted a slow-simmering, psychological, gothic novel about grief and longing.--Booklist
Brooks cooks up a spellbinding gothic story featuring a sinister country house. This is an exquisitely creepy page-turner.--Publishers Weekly
Eerie, gripping, and macabre: a gothic romance for the contemporary age.--Kirkus Reviews
